Woodstock', ;I1L, forcompiicity'in the mur- 
dea of his' father, mpther7and' Amos W. 
Anderson on;Fcb.;28, 1K02,' 
■ The sentence, pronounced by ^Judge'' G;; 
H: Donnelly, followed young Ellsworth's 
remarkable arid- complete confession, de- 
scribing in detail the stery;'of tho crime 
and acknowledging* his-partin it. 

The confession in tho courtroom Tuesday 
whs brought to light. and the guilt fas- 
tened upon the only Boriof the Ellsworths, 
aa a result of strategy and careful plnnnlng. : 
Ta the Bolutionbf "tho rayrjte'ry. andthe in- 
crimination of young Ells worth, 'States. At- 
torney L. D. Lowell, Jr. and'bia nssiBtant, 
D. T. Smiley, labored unceasingly and 
carefully led -the unsuspecting youth into 
nu admission of the 'facts. 

Ellsworth first admitted. h^'^LWo the 
hearing oE .the "state's niternq^ib^c n 8- 
Bistant, and several detectVveB*rfl^T^eekin 
a Chicago office, Yesterday he was^taken 
to the McHenry County court at Wood- 
stock and repeated his acknowledgment," '.. 

Stoically and apparently unmoved EIIb- 
worlh, narrated in broken ^sentences to the. 
court the manner in which ' ho nsaisted bis 
father, Benjnmin Ellsworth in carrying 
out a plot to murder Mrs.' Ellsworth nnd 
Anderson, the Intlor a retired farmetJivIrig 
with the Ellsworths. He told in droning" 
tones -how be nlono had committed tho 
brutal murdera which his father planned 
but only half finished, ending withrthe ast 
teunding recital oE " the Blnying-of bis 
own father. .' " 

Tho ionger- statement of young Ells- 
worthwae- made .in an office to which lie 
had been entrapped by Stato's 'Attorney 
Lowell, with-jthe.nid of. detectives. of.;thB 
Malt Pinberton agency. y-^ 

Following Ellsworth's release' under 88;- 
000 bonds a year ago the. state's "attorney 
tracked bis every movement in the hope of 
ascertaining tbe^facts concerning the crime; 

Convinced that, while the evidence was 
not .sufficient to convict the "son-yyoung 
Ellsworth knew, .eriough^aho'ufthli'telirder 
to clear up the affair, State's Attorney 
Lowell laid a' plot to entrap his man.

whose acquaintance Ellsworth rapidly 
made. He took a liking to this man and 
Boon became quite ^confidential with him. 
' Different stories of tho tragedy at Wood- 
Btock were told by young Ellsworth to his 
acquaintances. Finally Nolan, pretending 
to take pity on the young man, offered to 
help clear him. Nolan's friend gave the 
other detective a draft for 815,000, as much 
as necessary of which, it was understood,.

The people of Paterson, N. J., now 
realize tho extent of the great, flood 
which began ITYhiay, Nearly two entire 
wards, taking in. tho manufacturing sec- 
tion, have been under water, 'Monday 
morning thousands of men, .women nnd 
children employed in different mills and 
factories found they could not go to 
work on account of 'those, plants being- 
shut: down. Hundreds of these '-people 
have also been driven from their homes 
R&dhave neither food nor shelter. 
{ Tho heaviest damngo In Paterson waa 
to the manufacturers. At. present it Is 
impossible to give an acctirnto idea of 
the- total loss, hut conservative estimates 
are about $2,000,000. 

The health authorities have a difficult 
task before them in devising means to 
prevent an epidemic of sickness in tho 
flooded territory. The people who were 
forced to lenve their homes will not be 
allowed to-roturn until the districts are 
is a sanitary condition. 

Paasnlc Conditions Uetter. 

Tho flood conditions in Passaic and 
vicinity ' wcro considerably improved 
Monday. Tho high water mark nt the 
Dundee dam, which wns 01% inches nt 
midnight had fallen two feet in the 
morning. Wellington was under water 
and several hundred persons took refuge 
In the public schools. Four or five hun- 
dred residents of Walllnetou are being 
sheltered In tho toirn hall and school- 
build lags at Pn&naic. 

Tho loss' from the. flood in Passaic is 
estimated nt about $2,000,000, without 
any Insurance.' This does not Include 
tha loss to workmen who are thrown out 
of employment temporarily or the loss 
sustnlued by. manufacturers by the Inter- 
ruption of business. Nearly every mil] 
is closed. 

At DuUbnvtllc "fifty or more houses 
were .washed from their foundations and 
many overturned and: wrecked. 

Trolley connections between Passaic 
nnSPatersotihara been re stored. 

Owing to the interruption of railroad 
■traffic by tbo floods, New York City hns 
been suffering from [ta most serious milk 
famine since the big blizzard of 1888, 
Conservative estimates are that only one- 
tenth tho normal supply is being distrib- 
uted nnd several days must elapse before 
conditions are again normal. 

Iteports from. nil sections on the coast 
show heavy seas, with soma damage to 
water front property and small shipping. 

It Is estimated Uint tho havoc wrought 
by the flood near Trenton, N. J., (wilt 
cause a loss of nearly $1,000,000. Nino

Railway m Practically Iaaao Ultima* 
turn to Tralu'lSmplcore*. 

Itailroads tlirougliout tho country are 
waging war against the use of intoxicat- 
ing liquors end tobacco by employes en- 
gaged In operating trains. Tho flat has 
gone forth generally that employes who 
drink, or who frequent places where liq- 
uors are sold, are not safe men to entrust 
with the lives of patrons nor with the 
valuable property transported by the rail- 
roads, Total abstinence Is essential to 
ecrrice In the operating department of 
every railroad centering in Chicago, and 
so far 'M known of every important rail- 
road in tbo United State*. 

Tho rules which have recently been In- 
augurated against tho ufio of tobacco 
nro not as stringent as those against 
liquor, but generally they proscribe the 
use of tobacco while on duty and when 
about stations and on . the property of 
tho railroad companies. At - for the 
cigarette, the order against It Is almost 
as severe as that againBt^whlsky. 

The revolution which da being effected 
in these respects Is shown iu tho new 
rule books which many of the manage- 
ments of the Chicago roads have just 
issued. Without a single exception theso 
books contain tbo following, or rules 
which ore similarly framed! 

'The use of Intoxicants hy employes 
while on duty ia prohibited. Their ha- 
bitual use, or tho frequenting of places 
where they are sold, la suuidont cause 
for dismissal." 

"Tho use of tobacco by employes when 
on duty in and about pnssenger citations 
or on passenger cars Is prohibited." 

While, the rulea ore new practically 
the ssmo on all road«, some are more se- 
Tore than others in their enforcement. 
Not nil tho railroad* sesame to toy 
whether an operating employe may drink 
when off duty, whifo henceforth not a 
fow, tha Hock Island, for .example, will 
discharge men for "freqUBntinit aolooas 
whether on "or off duty. 

lllie reform has been brought about 
solely with the Idea of Incaee&lng the 
safety In train operation, and ofilcials de- 
clare that tho prohibitions, hare decreasr 
ed wrecks and accidents fully £3 per

, -; The following from the Libcrtyville In- 
dependent of Octobnr 2, shows the way tbe 
wuiaVis blowing: 
'"^"Supervisor Tiffany, of Antiocb, is 
Conceded" to bo a candidate for the republi- 
Jcon 'Domination for Slate Senator. Be 
V^and his friends have the past week care- 
f>fulty sized up the situation with tbe result 
r- ; he'.will in a few days so nation ucei A. if. 
Hy^tenrna, of "Waukegnn, has announced his 
•• tairididacy. Others are said to bo cnndi> 
■ : dates, but of that we know nothing. 
"• -Itfght now Mr. Tiftiny and Mr. Stearns 
> are the only avowed candidates. Mr. 
'• Tiffany, as cboiruian for two terms of the 
Lake County Board of Supervisors and the 
i Board of Review bus proven bis efficiency 
i and that he U a safo man in positions of 
public trust. He is a man of the people, 
young, energetic and withal substantial 
and reliable. As n republican he is truly 
representative. The beet and safest thing 
the other "intending candidates" can do 
13 to gracefully climb into the Tiffany 
band wncon. Such notion will do more to 
bring together certain contending factions 
in the republican ranks than could possible 
anything else. With A. K. Tiffany the 
generally accepted standard bearer Mr. 
Stearns will not be able to arouse sufficient 
dissenting interest to keep up the now lire- 
booW fight his determination to land the 
plum leads him to so persistently inaugu- 
rate aB each campaign approaches. 


It is hoped that Senators Ball and Alice 
of Delewaro will not imitate the colleagues 
from South Carolina and carry their quar-

on the floor of the United Slates Senate. 

Io consequence of the recent riots tbe 
Russian government has declared martial 
law at Gomel. However, tha difference 
between martial and" other, law' is very 
slight in Russia. 

It Set 'Off. Some Nitroglycerin, and a 
Big Explosion Folio wad. 

An accident, one of the most ex- 
traordinary on record, has juat oc- 
curred, at some new oilfields In the 
Baku district of Russia,; .an the bor- 
ders of the Caspian sea. 

One of the big "gusher" oil wells be: 
came choked, and, with a view of 
blowing It clear, a number of iron 
drums full of, nitroglycerin were 
brought down from Derbend and de- 
posited overnight In a large shed 
which was used by the men- as a sort 
of canteen. 

The steward of this, estabiisment, » 
Greek .named Darlos; opened one of 
the - drums for some reason best 
known to himself, ajid "decanted" a 
small quantity of the" dangerous liquid 
into a long thin glass 7or mixing vod- 
ka.- -.This lie placed on a shelf behind 
the bar; 

Shortly afterward there entered a 
workman named Borkovltch, who was 
famous for the boisterous' hilarity of 
his manner, and especially fur his 
loud, reBonant laughter.. 

The Bight of nitroglycerin In a vod- 
ka tumbler so excited his risibility 
that he gave vent to a series of sten- 
torian guffaws. This set the half-filled 
glass "ringing," and the treacherous 
con tents exploded. 

The concussion sufficed, la Its turn, 
to explode the rest of .the stuff in the 
drums, entirely demolishing the shed 
and killing five persons, nil who were 
In it at the time. 

The barman escaped through hav- 
ing gone down Into the cellar Just 
previously, whence he distinctly heard 
the laughter, followed by the musical 
"singing" of the thin tumbler and the 
two explosions. — Stray Stories.

Find Writ of George II. 

A court document, Issued in 1741 In 
the name of KJns George II of Great 
Britain, and bearing bis se*l, has been 
unearthed In an attic of ea old house 
in Sandwich, Mass. It is r-n execution 
against one John Hyland, Jr., to satis- 
fy a Judgment obtained by James Otis 
of Barnstable; father of James Otis, 
the. American revolutionary pioneer. 

It appears that the principal saw- 
mills in. this section wire in those 
days located at Scituate, and there 
was' much trading between Sandwich 
and Barnstable. Prlvato documents 
and court records go to show that 
James Otis bought lumber of Hyland 
previous to 1737. aad that when their 
business transactions closed there was 
a balance of J29 9s. Cd. In f*av6r' gf

Lightning Follows Wire 800 Feet and 

Discharges a Blast. 
. .It. waB a peculiar freak oflightnlng 
which sent Martin Stevens, a miner 
at : Franklin Furnace, N. J.', to his 
dea'h. He was very much afraid of 
lightning; and said that he was glad 
he worked underground where' U10* 
lightning could not get at hjm, ' '; 

.It was his custom whenever a Btorm 
came up to run into . the ' mide. en- 
trance. He" did not think that, the 
lightning would chase- him [.under- 
ground and slay him there, -but that Is 
exactly what It did. -" 

Stevens was engaged In making a 
■blast ready for a charge, when sud- 
denly the lightning struck the electric 
light wire outside and ran down the 
wire 100 feet into the mine, where it- 
crossed with tbe discharge wire which 
Stevens was using. 

As a consequence the blnst was dis- 
charged while Stevens was working 
over it and he was blown to pieces. —

-tenderly, as ho drew- her hands from her

way kertonrs; "weep no more;

"Then you do not despise me?"

ijjped; he was about to say "love you," 
t. remembering his vow', ho added soft- 
t'"plty you."- 

'? Yes,- you may pity me! Oh, auntlo, 
turtle! why did I ever promise you to 
eme to. this wretched place?" was her 
Ailing cry. 

^ttll holding her hand In his, and also 
Utlu'i from her the candle, ho turned 
ud led her down the long, steep stairs. 
Only onco did Ethel speak, then sha 
nicely said: 

.^Slr licgiaald will he very angry If he 
wrs of your entrance here! Must ho 

"I will think It over and let you know 
40-ffiorrow. You must sleep to-night and 
w-S..** w cover from this nervousness." 

bey aeon reached the bottom stair, 

entered the corridor. Then Ethel 

vfiernborbd that her work was hut half 

ic, and the rest could not be occom- 

'islml until Dr. Elfensteln had left her. 

Umlng to him, she said: 

//' '.'Will you kindly tell me how you en- 

>" /,/• lured this place? You must leave me 

: - >/Jio.w, going silently as you came." 

/ "I will. I came through the ruins. I 
r £-snv you open a door and reach for a 
■~lV/ basket, then I Instantly entered."; . 
', ""But: surely, I'fastenod it again V 

• "You were ho agitated, you forgot to 
'■(do It. I ccrhalnly opened It, without dlf- 
.. 'Acuity, and crept after you, eager to 

solve, the mystery of the haunted tower, 

. -which I then, for tho Drat time, began 

'I ^io connect with your movements; But 

.you are weary -now, ao I will lcajc you, 

and rot urn as I came.", 

Giving back the candle, he took her 
nndilnd wns just saying, "Good night, 
Sji Nevergnil," when suddenly both 
f*£d short In their walk; both turn- 
deadly pale, as a short, strange, load 
rt, close by their cars, Btnrtled and 
founded them. 
/ *• Then, to their horror, something darted 
'toward a them, a huge form swooped 
past, dashing tho candle to the ground, 
"thus extinguishing It, leaving them In 
total darkness and gloom. 
' *'0h, what is it? What is it?" cried 
tho terrified girl, as sho nestled close to 
her companion, while he, scarcely realiz- 
ing what he did, threw bis arms around 
her form, to protect her from ho knew 
not what. 

Suddenly a wild, unearthly laugh, or 
. 'yell, floated to them from the other end 
of the corridor, nnd as it passed, Dr. 
'Elfensteln pressed tho girl he held closer 
to his heart, and laid his check against 
hor frightened face. 

"Oh, do not Leave mel I shsll die! 1 
ehnll die!" gasped Ethel. 

"I will not. You are not so afraid 
now, and thus, close to me, ore you, 

"No; not so fearfully afraid as I was," 
Gently atroking her hair, the young 
man felt, even la tho terror, Inspired by 
itfheir dreadful position, a feeling almost 
of rapture steal over him, as be held 
[her thus close In his arms, with hers 
(dinging to his waist But suddenly, 
calmer reflections came; he felt this thing 
must be seen to; whatever presence hnd 
been near them must bo discovered, nnd 
that ho ought to follow up the sound. 

"Child [" he whispered, "whatever has 

|been near us, I know by that, lant cry, 

■has escaped Into tho ruins, through the 

!dooT by which I entered. That being so, 

.»'' -■■**, ual"iir- a Bty'cii try y° u to a p'acfl of 

Wety, 'then search 'around to see what It 

dd have been.", , 

Instantly, 'thenflt flo*ihed over Ethel's 
4nd, that the ape, Sir Itcginnld's choice 
>ncenled treasure, had escaped, and that 

■ he knife sho had so carelessly given him 
iad done the deed,' He had cut bis way 
jut Oh, the terror this. thought thrust 

Into her heart wna almost unbearable! 

■ jAt once, she boenme, as It; were, a dead 
.weight again in the doctor's arms, 

Then another thought cnma thnt Im- 
tpnrted now life. Her oath had been tak- 
■en never to reveal tlio existence of that 
'nnlnial, nor of the concealed room. In 
«rder to keep this vow, Dr. Elfensteln 
mum not' examine the premises. 

She know well now. the' moaning' of 
.that first report, Tho beast had knocked 
down the iron shelves, burst open tho 
ipnnolB, nnd In consequence a light would 
'ehow the doctor that opening, and tho 
Toom beyond. Not ho must never exam- 
ine this corridor. Nerving herseJf for 
{& new tnsk, she said: 
" ''Doctor, I cannot consent to being loft 

* moment hero alone! Nor wjll I con- 
fej ise'nt to your exposing yourself further 

Jto-ttlgbL Take me,/ , tben,"to my room, 
and we will lock up this placo, and you 
con steal softly from the bouse another 

• "But, -Miss Nevergail, surely this 
lought to bo Investigated." ^ 

"Oh, no, please do not Investigate! I 
eannot nllow It, cannot enduro It!" 
As she spoke, .« long, deep shudder 

• - (passed over her frame, nnd the doctor, 
noticing it, knew at once that her nerv- 
tous system could stand no more, there- 
lfore, felt It w'ns best to yield. 
j "Shall I not, at least, light tho canr 
'■die?" . • 

J'No, nol I cannot bear It!" murmured 
ittio poor girl, horrified at tho thought ot 
(What a light might reveal. 
' ["Tell rao, then, which way your room 
kos, and I shall 'carry you thither at 
■ I* "Straight! Just beyond Uib door by 

way, my- room lies opposite its door," 
sho returned. "But, Indeed, doctor, I 
can walk, if you will only let mo hold to 
your arm, I would rather, 

"Well, be" It sol" returned the man, re- 
leasing her, yet still retaining her hand, 
which he drew under his nrm. 

When they honrcd the door of the ruin, 
however, Ethel felt n strong current of 
nlr upon her check, which revealed the 
fact that It stood wido open, and -In- 
stantly a deadly fear of tho horrible 
creature that had escaped, being a til I 
near, seized her, nnd again she shrank 
closer to -ber friend, while her faltering 
stops told of deporting strength. 

Without n word, Enrle Elfensteln lin- 
ed her In his arms, and so passed Into the 
passageway. Remembering that his 
presence there must be kept n secret, tho 
young girl whispered: 

"Step softly; let no one heart" 
"I will," ho breathed back, and guid- 
ed by the dim light under tbo door in- 
dicated, ho .passed through, emerging 
from the open' wardrobe, Into tlio bed- 
room beyond. ~ 

Placing .her In a large easy chntr, he 
Htepped back, closed nnd fastened both 
doont, then returned to her side. 

"Please, doctor," she murmured, "ox* 
(Tmlno every part of this room before yon 
go, to be sure the dreadful— the dread- 
ful," she hesitated. . 

"Yes, I know," he Interrupted, "and 
you will' soon sec you are perfectly safe." 
Obeying her wish, he then made a 
thorough search of room and closet. But 
na ho supposed, nothing was to bo seen. 
"Now, how' will you leavo tho house?" 
she murmured, anxiously. 

A sly look back towards' tho corridor 
caused her to exclaim, In a whisper, as 
alio laid her hand entreating!y on his 

"Not there, doctor, promise me you 
will not return to that placo this night, 
but will go directly home." 

Again Enrlo yielded to the pleading of 
tho sweet girl beside him, and again an- 

"Tben_ I must cither drop from your 
window or go through the hall. Stay! I 
ree a strong strap around your trunk. 
It Is tho very thing! I will fasten It to 
the balcony, and so slip down by its 
aid to tlio ground, Arc you willing?*' 
•: "perfectly. Doctor," she whispered, 
""do you know I should have died from 
fright had you not been there ?" 

"Yes, I know; and now, before I say 
good night, I shall mix you a compos- 
ing draught, and then you must promise 
me, to go instantly to your hod, as »oon 
os you take in the strap, and close the 
window, and tho lust thing, swnllow the 
preparation I shall leave. Will you do 
this, In return for my not Investigating 
further, what I see you do not wish ex- 

Ethel hesitated, then remembering that 
she could not see Sir Reginald that night, 
she gave the promise. 

A moment more passed, and then the 
strap had been fastened, the doctor had 
whiapcred "Good night," and sho watch- 
ed him disappear amid the darkness mid 

Darting out, sho secured the strap 
without trouble, fastened down the' win- 
dow, and. soon slept under the effects of 
the nnodyne ho bad so thoughtfully left 
for her use. 

Well Indeed was It for her that she 
could sleep, for without some rest the 
could never have borne the terrible ex-

The next morning Ethel ntteaipted to 
rise, as usual, but found herself so lit 
with a sick headache that the attempt 
was vain. Every time sho lifted ber 
head from her pillow, It throbbed wild- 
ly, while n blind dlsziucss en me over her 
to such an extent that she felt ft were 
bettor to keep still for a while until It 
pasted away. 

At nine o'clock a servant came to her 
room, and she sent an excuse to the 
family for her non-appearance- About 
ten a messogo came from Sir Reginald, 
asking how soon she could come to him? 
She returned for answer that her head 
was still In Eiich pain that she feared not 
until afternoon. 

About fire Dr. Elfensteln called to see 
his patient, and his lordship at onco re- 
quested him to look after his secretary, 
saying that sho wns not able to come to 
him, while he was most anxious to see 
her. ' Mrs. Fredon wns then dispatched 
to Miss Nevergnll's room to prepare her 
for a visit from the doctor. 

As the young man entered, he was 
really startled to see how wan and pale 
tha excitement of tho alght before, and 
ft fejv hours' Illness, bad made her. Sho 
had made several attempts to rise, and 
had succeeded In dressing herself, hut' the 
exertion had overcome her, and once 
more she had' been obliged to recline up- 
on the bed, while her large dark eyes, 
and black dress, made her cheeks seem 
nlmont like snow. 

"Oh, doctor!" she sighed, as be ad- 
vanced nnd took her hand In his, "Can 
you give me something to stop this head- 
ache, so that I can go to Sir Reginald? 
He has wanted me all day, and has sent 
for me several times, and I must sec him, 
but I cannot seem to get titers." 

"You havo done right to keep still. I 
will give you a remedy thnt I think will 
cause you relief in an hour's time. Un- 
til then, you should try to sleep," 

Prepnrlng a liquid, he carefully held 
the tumbler to her lips, saw her drink 
It, then throwing a light shawl over her, 
left, saying as ha did so:, 

"It you sleep now, Inm almost certain 
you can visit his lordship In tho length 
of tlmo I mentioned." 
'It scorned that tho medicine, and his 
calm, kind words did soothe her, for at 
once she fell into the restful sleep so 
much needed. Tlio-nnp proved quite a 
long one, and ft was, seven o'clock in the 
evening before she crept through/the hull,

frightful noise of a heavy fall came. 
tfhen a [urge monster darted out, dashed 
the candle from my hand, and with [°

with fright." . / 

"Girl! girl!" yelled the infuriated mnn 
his face turning purple with rage, "whnl 
Is this you toll me? Gone! Escaped! 
Speak!" ndded he, roiiRhly shaking her 
by the arm. "Tell mo It is a lic-^a .lit 
that you snld just now!" i 

"No, Sir Reginald," returned the pn)jtd 
Ethel; 'it is tho truth. Whatever yov

"Speak then. How did he get out d'

With a [ftltcriug voice the frlghtenei

"J dropped the knife on the shelves i 
few nights before and forgot it, t 
whirled around, nnd I knew by tho cry b

fearful wrench that It dblocntcd uhe cV 
bow. "Out of my sight; out of my lioutt 
this Instant! You have rp.incu me will

shall you sleep under this roof!" 

Once again ho raised his nrm — thli 
time to strike. But fortunately, wlti 
a moan of pain at tlio Injury she had £ 
rendy sustained, the had darted bad. 
and so the blow descended on empty ak 

Without another look at the man b*- 
rore her the_poor young girl crept froa 
his presence, nnd dragging herself bat! 
to her room, fastened herself in, whlli 
aho sought to prepare for her depnrtun. 

With her arm hanging motionless b 
her side, and nearly wild with pain, ati 
opened her trunks nnd thrusting her val- 
uables Insido ns well ns sho could wili 
ono hand, .she locked them nnd droppri 
tho key into her pocket. 

Fearing, sho scarcely.- knew what, sh 
put the package of papers- her aunt had 
given her, with her purse, nlso In hn 
pqeket, that she might ba certain of their 
safety. Then hastily "putting comb, 
brushes and night nppnrcl ia a haxd 
satchel, she paused to rest. 

Advancing to her window, she found 
that a heavy rain was still falling, nliil 
that darkness was oven then over tin 
oarth. Throwing her -wntcrproof oyer 
her shoulders, with its hood drawn over 
her tint, she opened her door and glldd 
through the hall, down the stairs nnd 'cut 
of the front entrance, fortunately wtlV 
out being scon by any of the family. :j 

As she had passed the sick man's rooa 
she knew by the sound of many excltei 
vuio's within that they had gone to his 
assistance,, and she Judged he must ban 
Injured his hip.- hy his passionate freni;. 

While she pitied the man, she fcarei 
him, and never breathed freely until out 
side the.door. Then with n hurried step 
she passed down the ramble. 

Once avaiy from the house nnd hcyosi 
tho reach of Sir Reginald's wrath, sit 
paused to consider whither she should 
go, nnd what she should do. 

As she pnuscd one thing seemed plait 
Sho could do nothing until n physlclu 
attended to her wounded arm. In ordir 
to hnvo this accomplished, It was eri- 
dent thnt she must seek Dr. Blfourteb 
at his home. 

She Hhrank from doing this. Still It 
could not be helped. Her nrm couli 
not bo raised, and on that arm she de- 
pended now for her dolly bread. 

Once In the road beyond she cotild at 
lights in windows of dwelling houtti 
far down the road. The first of thta

fitness are' pretty apt- to indicate jtbi 
true state of the nation's health, arvl 
when seventeen out of every thousand

In opening his speech Senator, Allison 
said that the campaign In Iowa this 
year wns remarkably devoid of State 
Issues because of the fact I bat the 
Cummins administration bad been bo 
efficient that there wub no opportunity 
for 1 criticism. In fact, be said ibe Dcm- 
ocrats In their convention had by Im- 
plication complimented tho Governor 
nnd his other State officials, 
- After an extended review of the 
growth of the present (nriff system to 
Its greatest efficiency Senator Allison 

"It Is contended that the protective 
policy Is tho basis of what arc known 
as trust combinations In our country, 
and thnt If these are to be crippled. or 
destroyed the most effective weapon is 
free trade In trust made goods— that is 
Id say, -that goods produced Ja other 
countries of diameter and quality sim- 
ilar "to those produced by a trust In 
this country, shall be placed on the 
freo list. The effect of this, of course, 
would be to place all goods- of Hi Is 
character Imported on the. free list,, 
whether competitive goods were made; 
herb by a trust combination or by in- 
dependent factories, competing, Willi 
the trust, thus allowing world 'wide 
competition In tills clasB of goods. 

"This plan is Impossible ;of execution, 
even If otherwise effective, ns It would 
lead to endless contests nnd conflicts 
In the custom houses am) Jn the courts 
on the question of what nro trust made 
goods and what arc goods of like char- 
acter produced here and also produced 
abroad. >, 

Kepcnl Would Cripple All. 
, "According lo the census ot 1000, 
about 12 per cent of manufactured ar- 
ticles were mado by what we call 
trusts in ihls country. Thnt percent" 
ago has Increased since 1DO0, but cer- 
tainly docs not now exceed 20 per cent 
of "tbo total product. Ilut if tbo Dem- 
ocratic proposition were enacted Into 
law those producing the remaining SO 
per cent in competition with the trusts 
would be -punished nnd crippled and 
it may be destroyed through no fault 
of their own, but.jjy the action of tbo 
trusts producing the 20 per cenf, • 

"If Inrlff duties are necessary to pro- 
tect our producers against forcigu com- 
petition, tlull? not only those who' are 
In combination here, Ipit also tlio Inde- 
pendent manufacturer, must suffer 
alike if the necessary^ protection Is 
withdrawn. Is it possible fo devise a 
more effect) vo method of destroying 
^ho protective system than this pro- 
posed, Insidious method of withdraw- 
ing protection from trust mado goods? 

"The basis of this proposal Is a false 
one, The tariff Is not tho foundation of 
these combinations, nor does It pro- 
mote them In any material degree. 
Whatever their origin, It cannot bo 
found In our tariff laws. If it were 
io found, then these combinations 
would bo confined to those manufac- 
turers benefited by the tariff. Hut It 
so happens -thnt ninny of theso com- 
lilnatlons, mid the largest ot them,

last few yeara, not because of our tar- 
iff policy, but rather because they are 
part of the economic evolution faking

exist In all countries having protective 
tariffs, nnd they exist as welt In free

ed from tbcin, but these evils cannot 
be traced to our tariff- policy, nor arc 
they confined to nur country. They arc 
seen ou the continent and in Great

"Effective control of trusts must be 
bad through national and State regula- 
tion In co-operation. Our greatest law- 
yers believe tliey can ho so controlled. 
The laws upon our Federal statute 
books providing for national control 
have been placed there by the Republi- 
can party, Including the effective stat- 
ute passed by tbo last Congress. 

"All parties ngree that whatever can 
be done ought to be done to minimize 
and remove as far ns possible the evils 
which exist because of these' combina- 
tions. But It Is plain that the adoption 
of free trade and tho abandonment of 
the policy of protection is not one of 
these remedies.

it is a part or the policy of the Re-

national banks practically havo I Ittio

Still Another Oasc. 

Fraukflvlllo, Wla., Oct. 12. — Many to- 
ciarknble cures are -being reported 
from all over the country, but there Is 
one right here In Pranks vlllc which is 
certainly worth publishing, and which 
has hot as yet been given to tho public. 

Mrs; Louis Mnrklson of this place 
had been a sick woman for quite a 
long time and could not find anything 
to give her any help. She suffered nil 
the painful symptoms of what ls-gen- 
erully known as female weakness. Ev- 
ery woman who reads her utory will 
understand these distressing conditions 
which combine to make the lives of 
many women one long burden of 
weakness and suffering. 

Sirs. Mnrklson elm need one day to 
hear of a now remedy called Dodd's 
Kidney Pills, that was said to be n 
splendid medicine for women's weak- 
ness, She determined to try some nnd 
soon found herself getting better. SI10 - 
kept on with the pills and was cured. 
Speaking of her case -Mrs.- "Mark Ison

Crazy Annrchlat Attempt* 'to Vcree 

Wax Pout White Motiae Guarda, 
Frefildcnt Reoflevett Monday narromly 
had a nnrrqrr escape from doath at the 
hands -of a crazy .nnorchlft who la now 
locked up In the go^crnmont Lnanne aay- 
ltim. Only after a desperate atruifffllo 
■was tl»o 'man, who gave, hta name as Po- 
ter Elliott and his home as Minneapolis, 
©verpoTvered by the pollco and removed 
from tha^Wiilto Ilouec. 

Ho had camo Jrom MlnnoajxiTts to 
"take control of the BOrcrnxncat," and It 
Is hollered he had planned te onaooiaatd 
tho President Sunday morning od Ma 
way homo from churcli. Elliott occupied 
a seat in tho'gaJlcry.'overlobking th« n*w 
In rrhlch tho President «at and left tha 
building just beforo tlw concl.nsloq of the 
■o^co-and book^np 1 a poVttlon^on' tie 
aldowalk a fen* rods away. 

When the President eans>.otit'.iittd\ 
walked briskly down tha atroot. ElAofct 
stepped suddenly forward, 'hold outtila 
hand nnd said: "Roosevelt, shako' hands 
with Elliott." 

Without slackening his pneo the Presi- 
dent raised his hat and held out his hand, 
enying, "I am filad to «ee you,"-' and pass- 
ed on, • It Is helloTcd the man wa« dia- 
concccted by the President's manner and 
had not the norve te P«t hl» plan of. isur- 
der Into execution. 

A, little before noon Hfoodny MUott 
•ntcred the venhlbule of mo White H*ws* 
and demanded to bo admitted to se« the 
President. It was evident that he wa» 
crazy and nha attend anta 'denied hiaa od- 
mlswlon. IIo attempted to forco hla way 
In and It was only after a hard atsugglo 
that ho was overpowered end carried to 
a police van that bad been sirapaoncd. 
Ho was placed in tho" van In tho custody 
of two officers. 

Seeming to realise then for nho- first 
time that ho Wftfi under arrest, Elliott 
begnn/tho furious etrugg!e_ with' his. cap- 
tors for liberty, no drew 'a ' rewlver 
from the right trido pocket of his trous-^ 
«rs and attempted to ahoot.Offlcer James

snd wrenched tho weapon from, hlau 

- In O10 strugglo In tho ran Elliott had 
broken a glasa panel with hla head, se- 
verely cubdng Mb head nnd faee. OCflcer 
Cleaell cuHtntned a serious cut on hla 
right arm. Tho van woe. hurried to the 
emergency hoepUol, where the Injuries 
of both OIsbcU and Elliott were dressed, 
Elliott ia undoubtedly violently lnaane. 

.The fact is Peruna has overcome all. op position and has won it» 
Way to the hearts ; of the peopie. The "natural timidity ^hich so 
many people have felt about givinEr endorsements ta any remedy i» 
giving way. Gratitude and a desire to help others has inspired 
thousands of. people to give public testimonials for Peruna. who 
heretofore would not have consented to such publicity; . 

Never before in the annals of medicine has it happened that so 
many J m en of national and international reputation, have ) been 
willing to give unqualified and public endorsements to a "proprietary 
remedy. No amount of advertising could have accdmplished.such 
a result. Peruna has won on its own merits, ■ Peruna' cures - 
catarrh of whatever phase or location in the human body. This is • 
why it receives so many notable and unique endorsements.

"Sixteen years n«o when our first child 
was a baby he waa subject lo croupy spells 
nnd we would be very uneasy about him. 
We began uaing Chamberlain's Cough 
Remedy in 1887 and finding it such a re- 
liable remedy for colds and croup, we hnvo 
never been without it in tho house since 
that time. We have five children nnd 
have given it to all of them with good re- 
sults, One «ood feature of this remedy is 
that it is not disagreeable to take and our 
b'ablea really like it. Another is that it ia 
not dangerous and there .ia no risk from 
giving an over dose. I congratulate you
